Description

This smoothie isn’t just a delightful blend of flavors; it’s a powerhouse of essential nutrients. Packed with protein, calcium, vitamins C and D, and other vital nutrients, it ensures you start your day right.


  • 2 tablespoons quick oats
  • 1 cup chopped mango (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup 2% milk or your preferred milk alternative
  • ¾ cup Greek yogurt


  1. Prep the Ingredients: If you’re using fresh fruits, wash and chop them as needed. For a colder smoothie, you can use frozen fruits.

  2. Blend the Oats: Start by blending the quick oats alone until they turn into a fine powder. This ensures a smooth texture for your smoothie.

  3. Add Fruits and Flavors: Add the chopped mango, blackberries, flaxseed, honey, and vanilla extract to the blender.

  4. Pour in the Liquids: Add the milk (or milk alternative) and Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt adds a creamy texture and a protein punch to your smoothie.

  5. Blend to Perfection: Blend everything together until smooth. If the smoothie is too thick, you can add a little more milk to reach your desired consistency.

  6. Taste and Adjust: Give your smoothie a taste. If you prefer it sweeter, add a bit more honey.

  7. Serve and Enjoy: Pour the smoothie into a glass and enjoy it immediately for the best taste and nutrient retention.

Personalization Tips

  • Fruit variations: Feel free to substitute mango and blackberries with your favorite fruits. Berries, bananas, peaches, or pineapple are great options.
  • Add more nutrition: For an extra nutrient boost, consider adding a scoop of your favorite protein powder or a handful of spinach.
  • Lactose-free: Easily make this smoothie low in lactose by using plant-based yogurt (if you are intolerant to the dairy version) and a milk alternative like almond, soy, or oat milk.

Morning Prep Made Easy: Quick Tips for Your Breakfast Smoothie

To ensure your mornings are as smooth as your breakfast smoothie, a little preparation can go a long way. By organizing and prepping some of your ingredients the night before, you can save precious time during your morning rush. Here are some quick tips to make your smoothie-making process even faster and more efficient:

  • Pre-chop fruits: If you’re using fresh fruits like mangoes or bananas, chop them the night before and store them in an airtight container in the fridge. For an extra chilly smoothie, you can even freeze them.
  • Oats ready to go: Measure out your quick oats and keep them in a small container or a ziplock bag, ready to be blended in the morning.
  • Portion out ingredients: Ingredients like flaxseed can be measured and kept in small containers or bags.
  • Organize your space: Keep all your ingredients together in one section of your fridge or on your counter. This way, you won’t have to search for anything when you’re half-awake.
